TIC TAC Project. Creativity as a driver of Human Development

736
-1

Published on

TIC TAC is a Development Cooperation project of the University of Girona (Spain) focused on helping two elementary schools in Catalonia. These two schools, in the cities of Girona and Salt have very high immigration rates (greater than 85%), and are in danger of becoming “ghetto schools”. Currently, these two schools regularly visit our spaces in the Science and Technology Park of University of Girona, where they actively participate in several workshops and activities designed by our team. In a very significant part of these activities children use Scratch to learn to express themselves creatively through technology, and then as they progress, they participate in workshops on LEGO robots, underwater robots, rescue robots, astronomy and technological gymkhanas in the city.

For us, this initiative has evolved from an outreach project to a research project, where we study and measure how these technologies help develop creative thinking and critical thinking. Right now we're starting to get our first results. In the session at the Scratch Conference next July, we would like to present these first results, with particular emphasis on the Scratch workshops we are carrying out in three groups of fifth graders of the two selected schools.

    22. 22. Evaluation: Creative Thinking Test- Each test has 43 points to be evaluated (0, 0.5, 1)- We are evaluating characteristics like originality, flexibility,elaboration, emotional expressiveness, fantasy, etc.- 43 points x 2 tests x 60 students x 4 evaluators = 20,640 points TIC TAC Project - Scratch Conference 2012 – MIT Media Lab
    23. 23.

    24. 24. Conclusions- More than 30 workshops completed- 2 Creative Thinking Tests given- Very good level of satisfaction of participants (students andaccompanying teachers)- The project has had a good impact: Carme Auguet School, Forum Impulsa… TIC TAC Project - Scratch Conference 2012 – MIT Media Lab
    25. 25. Conclusions- The combination of hands-on workshops and creativity capsules seems towork very well.- We detected an interest of teachers for training. So next semester we willinclude teacher training activities.- We need at least an extra year of workshops and some other tests in order toobtain conclusive results.
